nations are not dependent on russia for the majority of their energy. in this age of new energy markets, in this age of concern about global climate change and carbon overload we ought to be able to rush to the ability to be able to make europe less dependent. and if we do that, that will be one of the greatest single strategic differences that could be made here. we can deliver greater energy independence and help to diversify energy sources that are available to the european markets, and we can expand the energy infrastructure across europe, and we could build up energy storage capacity throughout the continent. third, we have to invest in the underpinnings of our economic partnership. we aring to, europe and the united states -- together, europe and the united states, two of the largest marketplaces in the world, and fact is we can seriously accelerate growth and job creation and serve as a buffer to any negative impacts of some of the steps we need to take if we move on both sides of the atlantic rapidly to complete the transatlantic trade and investment partnership. that agreement
